The recent reports regarding Liverpool’s potential agreement with Enzo Fernandez to have the player’s priority were taken very seriously by the Portuguese media, who since those claims, started considering the Reds the front-runners in the race for his signing.

It turns out that as Benfica received on Wednesday a €100m bid for the midfielder, many people immediately wondered if that was coming from Anfield.

That’s why newspapers A Bola and Record, who both managed to get some information on this offer, now come with the same message, claiming that was ‘not from Liverpool’.

Benfica are said to be resisting to that offer for now, as they don’t want to lose the player in the middle of the season.

The problem with that is his January departure could start becoming a reality, because the player has a €120m release clause, and that bid was quite close to that.

So in case someone shows up willing to trigger the fine, the Eagles’ only way to keep the midfielder would be to convince him to turn that down.

As the newspapers claim it was not Liverpool who made the offer, with A Bola adding it was not Real Madrid either, the bidder remains in secret.

They point out that the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are other clubs interested, alongside Liverpool, in the Argentine star.
